I'm glad you're enjoying my novel!

I'll definitely look at the sentence structure, especially in the first chapter.

A few people have told me Aldere's death wasn't clear, but I think it was - "final tear" should have made it obvious, as well as his last thoughts.

Oh, don't worry, Mya definitely has a personality. I hate dull protagonists with a passion.

Mya wasn't excited about it, though. She wanted to know why it was necessary that she have it and thought it just might cause her trouble. I definitely could lengthen that scene, though, especially since it is where the story gets its title from.

About the whole magic thing, please do not forget about the prologue. It's actually important. A lot of people seem to and ask me questions like "who's this Aldere guy anyway?" and "why can't the soldiers fight with magic again?" later on in the story. There will be a lot of magic in later chapters - Mya is studying it, after all, and another point-of-view character, Ketrech, is a mage as well.

Hello most excellent person in the entire world. Too much? Sorry, I'll tone it back a bit.

Hey, it's Tibby here, just dropping by to see if you'd like to swap. If so, it would be lovely if you read my book 'Angel of Despair'. Keep in mind that it is a heart based contest, but also keep in mind if you don't think it's worthy, don't heart it. Simple as that. I don't want a heart just because it's the thing to do.

After you have read and reacted as you deem appropriate to my book, please drop a comment on my page to let me know what to read. It may take a moment for me to get back to you, but fear not, I will return the swap. On my honor, I swear it so.

Thank you for your time, and I'm terribly sorry if you're not into swaps. Having a splendid evening (morning, afternoon).(:
